Extremely Dry Nose 5 Weeks After Septoplasty and Turbinate Reduction Surgery?
Hello there! I had a Septoplasty and Turbinate Reduction surgery on July 29, 2012 (5 weeks ago). My recovery seemed to be stellar, until about 3 weeks ago when my nose started to feel congested and difficult to breathe through. I realize now that the feeling is actually extremely dry nasal passages that make it feel as though I can't breathe. I'm starting to panic a bit, wondering if this is permanent (Empty Nose Syndrome) or if this is a common side effect from surgery. Any advice is welcome!
